This manga is hilarious and a must read if you need to kill time IMO. Plot however is lacking but comedy doesn't need a plot, right? Art is okay, humor is fantastic if you understand what they are talking about. Despite lack of plot, the situation is (for me) original. It's enjoyable. It does have a lot of potential to be dramatic though.

Rage rage and more rage.Probably my first manga that has fallen so low on the ratings from a good rating.I began reading it as a comedy,but the author decided to mind blow us completely by getting rid of his unwanted characters by making them act as complete bitches.And the worst part is that the evilness of the characters is presented not in a natural kind of way with all the consequences that sth like this brings in,but in a supposedly funny way.If you read it till the end you will get my point,but be prepared.If you want sth similar but without rage,try Genshiken or Doujin Work.

I must say I enjoy reading this but then again, I don't think its a manga for everybody to enjoy.You have to have considerable knowledge of otaku culture to really really appreciate the manga.If you're not into that stuff,the manga becomes really dry for you fast.Half the gags are references and otaku life,so its not everybody's cup of tea.

9 stars till after vol 5

Really enjoyed the manga, had great humor, had great emotional bits and i really liked all the characters. But then Volume 6 happened, thats when things got... really really dark... and not in a good way.
It literally hits you outta nowhere from vol 6 and onwards, the story gets more absurdly dark and i'm left reading this going "brah... the hell is going on here..." I just think the author got bored and or lost his gatdamn mind. Its a real shame because I really enjoyed this manga... and ending is supposed to be uplifting but there really isn't much to be uplifted by after all that has happened.

In the beginning of last chapter i was like "ohhh... happy end", but at the last few pages i was like "WTF?! AGAIN?"
Well, that was great, so waiting for season two.

..the recent development was a complete mess. The mother goes b!tchy, while the half-blood brother and his father are nude freak. The only good thing here is the pure love of father-daughter between Kanau and Kouta, although I think it's a little odd under the circumstances.

If Genshiken is your thing, then welcome to the next level. I like to think of this as a "ten years later" kind of story but, of course, more depressingly pitiful. The sheer level of "otakuness" in this manga borders on creepy, but that has its own charm. Unlike Genshiken, Otaku no Musume-san doesn't shy away from the focal point of their obsessions (it starts with a "p" and rhymes with corn!). If you're already into the dark world behind Naruto and One Piece, welcome, and enjoy.

Until Nozomi comes back. Would have been a 10 but author tried for some crazy srsbzns that felt so opposite of the tone set by the entire manga thus far, it felt really bad. Also, the ending is way too subtle, and teases way too much,

By all rights this should be a tragedy. Even his lolicon friend has not done anywhere near enough to deserve the crap life dumped on this man...... it was comedy and yet I felt like crying. This has a severe chance of giving someone a complex about females... rl females are usually far more manipulative and corrupt than manga shows, but these chicks could top the charts in reality. Honestly this is a story of a man who has everything stolen from him in return for a daughter.

This manga was one hell of a ride! The first 50ish chapters, it was an amazing light-hearted manga! AMAZING AND CUTE! I also loved the premise! So, I'm good until we learn about *him* and then when the mother comes back! ACKKKKKKKK THAT MADE ME RAGEEEEEEEEEE! But after that, it goes back for the last couple chapters into being light hearted and cute.

I feel bad for Haruka! >.< I hope there is a sequel lmao! When I was reading spoilers and in the 'RAGE chapters' I seriously wondered why anybody would want to read a sequel, but now I understand! ;D

TL biggrin R ~~~~

I don't know if it's just me, but I believe that Kimiko, the landlady's mom was forgiven to easily, as well as Nichi. Nichi.... omg don't get me started... Anyways, I don't know about you guys, but 'Sensei' is like 38~39 by the end of the manga isnt he? Sorta wierd since he has a 19 year old wife, who was originally supposed to be his adopted 'DAUGHTER'! It would have been better if they made the marriage an -on paper only- thing since it is sorta weird to have a mate who's 20 years your senior.
